Blacklock Blast – February 22

February 22, 2018

Monday we enjoyed Winter Wellness Aboriginal Day, organized by our Aboriginal Support Worker Lauren Petersen.  Through a grant, she was able to bring in guest speakers and workshop leaders to engage our entire school in deep learning about the medicine wheel and how that applies to wellness.  We raise our hands in deep appreciation of her hard work and dedication!


Reminder to parents that tomorrow, Friday, February 23, is Pro-D Day and school is not in session for students and that Monday, February 26, is Report Card Preparation Day and students will be dismissed at 10:45am.  Please make arrangements for your child to be picked up at 10:45am, as there will be no supervision after that time.

Next week we will be celebrating Diversity & Inclusion Week, which includes the traditional Pink Shirt Day on Wednesday.  Please have your child wear pink on Wednesday as a reminder that we all want to create a harrassment-free world.

Please remember to check out the PAC page for updates and information.

Attention Parents of Grade 5 students…. we have pre-registered your Grade 5 child at HD Stafford Middle School for September, 2018.  Please let the Office know if you will be making alternate arrangements for your child this Fall.
